International Conference on Pattern Recognition in Bioinformatics
Delft, The Netherlands, November 2-4 2011

Call for Papers - UPDATED DEADLINE

Please distributed to interested people

In modern biology, high-throughput measurement devices allow scientists 
to gather data at unprecedented rates. To make sense of this data, 
computational biologists and system biologists construct quantitative 
models, many of which depend on pattern recognition techniques. Their 
application is challenging due to the large volumes of data and 
background information, noisy measurements and target outputs, highly 
diverse data types etc.

The Pattern Recognition in Bioinformatics conference series aims to 
bring together  researchers, practitioners and students from around the 
world to present and discuss recent developments and applications of 
pattern recognition methods in current bioinformatics, computational 
biology and systems biology. Authors are invited to submit full papers 
in relevant research areas, which include but are not limited to:

·     Bio-sequence analysis
·     Gene and protein expression analysis
·     Biomarker discovery
·     Protein structure and interaction prediction
·     Motifs and signal detection
·     Metabolic modelling and analysis
·     Systems and synthetic biology
·     Pathway and network analysis
·     Immuno- and chemo-informatics
·     Evolution and phylogeny
·     Bio-imaging
·     Biological databases, integration and visualisation

Pattern recognition techniques of interest include:

·     Statistical, syntactic and structural pattern recognition
·     Datamining and data-based modeling
·     Evolutionary computation
·     Bayesian networks and graphical models
·     Neural networks and fuzzy systems

Invited speakers

·     Yves Moreau, Bioinformatics Research Group, K.U.Leuven, Belgium.
·     Mark Girolami, Department of Statistical Science, University 
College London.
·     Pierre Baldi, Institute of Genomics and Bioinformatics, University 
of California, Irvine.
·     Alvis Brazma, European Bioinformatics Institute.
·     Berend Snel, Department of Biology, Utrecht University.

Submission, Publication and Grants

Papers should be submitted electronically through the conference 
website. Springer will publish accepted papers in its Lecture Notes in 
Bioinformatics series (LNBI). A limited number of Ph.D. student travel 
grants will be made available; please keep an eye on the website for 
more information.
